My wife and I visited Melanie's for breakfast. It's a wonderful small cafe that has a very relaxed and friendly feel. My wife has the stuffed waffle and I had eggs, home fries and stewed apples. Everything was delicious.

Enjoy an intriguing variety of delicious cuisine and relax in this happy place located right in downtown Boone, central to everything. Park and walk, find seating outdoors or inside and select from a unique menu offering an array of wonderful taste treats. This is a 'must try' stop as you shop!

I'm a local and a regular to Melanie's. While I've enjoyed some good food through the years, I'm seeing a few disappointments becoming bad habits to the restaurant. Not having English Breakfast tea is a major problem for the regular tea drinker! You are a breakfast restaurant folks-get it and keep it in stock. Dirty areas in the restaurant don't... More

Most excellent breakfast! Lots of gluten free, vegan and allergy options. I ordered Eggs Benedict and my husband the Extreme Appalachian. They use local merchants for their breads, eggs etc. we had a long 45 min wait at 10:30 am but shopped in the area along the street until they paged us. Very worth the wait!

For eclectic small town flavor and great breakfast....you've arrived. We travel a lot and go to many small local kitschy places and for being on Main Street they definitely have achieved the "look" . The food was good tasting not the best but better than average. The wait staff is mostly college students from nearby Appalachian University and we visited... More

A gluten free lady, a picky kid and a hungry mom walk into this restaurant... and loved it!!! The curry chicken salad was da bomb! The kid loved the scrambled eggs, homefries and toast. Pick a burger any burger you can't go wrong! Half price wine on saturdays!!!

Melanie's is an adorable little eatery in downtown Boone. So glad we went here for breakfast instead of eating at the hotel!! Very friendly staff, bright interior, adorable exterior, great food and decent coffee!! This will be a new tradition when in town!

Melanie's is a tradition in downtown Boone serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. We source all of our bread, eggs and burgers locally as well as other items when we can. We have an eclectic and creative menu serving food made from scratch. We are sensitive to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diners. Now open evening hours with a new small plate menu, Booneshine beer on draft and wine by the glass. Come see us Thur-Sat evenings and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat on our beautiful deck while you watch the hustle and bustle of downtown Boone.
